Hard to say how much wind West Marin will get. But be prepared for trees and power lines coming down and power being out. "Strong, damaging winds possible from later today into Tuesday morning. Warning sign Wind gusts of 80+ mph have already been reported in the peaks this morning. For complete details, visit http://weather.gov/BayArea"
Traffic is absolutely bonkers in the Point Reyes National Seashore right now. So many cars. Good chance it will result in a massive traffic jam later this evening when everyone leaves. Plan accordingly. Shelter in place.
At least one local in Inverness felt the 4.5 earthquake centered by Gilroy, CA. Anyone else?

Wildlife cameras set up on a beach just north of Shell Beach in Inverness captured a very large male mountain lion on Thursday night around midnight. This was the same spot the cameras captured a mountain lion a few months ago. Other residents reported hearing a mountain lion screaming around 5pm on Wednesday evening. The sightings have been reported to the state and national parks. Be sure to use caution when hiking in the area around dusk or at night. (Thx SA)

Curious what a mountain lion scream sounds like? Listen to this: https://youtu.be/EfnTdF7ja9E
(UPDATE: The hats sold out. I'll let folks know when there are more) -- Want to support The West Marin Feed and a local shop at the same time? Head over to See to Sea in Point Reyes Station (next to the West Marin Pharmacy) and buy one of these very limited edition West Marin Feed 'beaches of West Marin' baseball hats. Or just say hi to the awesome owner, Maggie, and she'll hook you up with a free WMF sticker for your car, laptop or fridge.
The once stranded Limantour Beach faux military plane leaves the beach and passes through Point Reyes Station on its farewell tour. Goodbye plane.
Via Point Reyes National Seashore: "Drakes Beach in front of the Ken Patrick Visitor Center is temporarily closed due to a large number of male elephant seals. Beach access will be restored as soon as the males move elsewhere. That could be tomorrow, a week from now, or longer. Check our social media feeds for up-to-date info."

The plane is finally leaving Limantour Beach in Point Reyes and going home. The extraction crew made some custom wheel sleds and got it near the parking lot for moving out tomorrow. (And thx to Dane for rescuing my camera.)
Drakes Bay (Coast Miwok: Tamál-Húye) in Point Reyes lit up by commercial crab boats staying protected from a big swell this morning.
